If by this you mean names of the rooms for the signs? I don't think that's
necessary for the banners and posters we're making. The banners and posters
only need to say DebConf14 and have the appopriate sponsors' logos on them.

The water bottles are actually an expense that was put off based on funding
and we only recently realized we could fund them. While we do have extra
money, the chairs as a whole still desire us to keep spending as close to a
minimum as possible.

That said, we're keeping our printing costs way down, and we're way
underbudget for this. Tony, don't kill yourself trying to find cheaper
posterboard. You'll certainly have more options if you go to a craft (like
Michael's) or art supply (like Dick Blick) store.

As for badges, have we decided on text layout?
